Transitions 6

New Directions in Comics Studies 2015

31st October 2015, Birkbeck, University of London

Keynote: Dr. Mel Gibson (Northumbria University)

Respondents: Dr. Ian Hague (London College of Communication); Dr. Julia Round (Bournemouth); Professor Roger Sabin (Central Saint Martins)

Part of Comica – The London International Comics Festival, this is currently the only regular academic comics event based in London. Transitions is devoted to promoting new research into comics in all their forms, aiming specifically to provide a forum for research by postgraduate students and early career lecturers/researchers.

Comics studies encourage cross-disciplinary pollination and a convergence of distinct knowledges: literary and cultural studies, visual arts and media, modern languages, sociology, geography and more. By thinking about comics across different disciplines, we hope to stimulate and provoke debate and to address a wide spectrum of questions, to map new trends and provide a space for dialogue and further collaboration.

Attendance is free, but registration essential.  Email  to Hallvard, John, Nina, and Tony at
